Apple Focuses on Performance, AR for iPhone Operating System


Multi-user virtual environments are also coming to ARKit 2, so that more than one person can see the same perspective in real time.

Apple is launching a new tool named "Screen Time".

The organization also manifolds its commitment to user privacy by introducing the tools to stop advertisers from tracking the Apple device and users from being tracked online.

The tech giant has quietly added a new feature in iOS 12 called Live Listen that will effectively turn your AirPods into a hearing aid.

In addition to being able to use interactive Animoji and Memoji characters in place of yourself, FaceTime will now allow a whopping 32 users to get on one call together.

"Parents can access their child's Activity Report right from their own iOS devices to understand where their child spends their time and can manage and set App Limits for them", said Apple.

At Apple's 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, the company revealed not only reasons to use their devices more. Most parents share their iPad with their child and any time limits you set will be for that device.

At this point it is unclear whether Back to My Mac will make a return to macOS Mojave in a future beta release or if this is the end of a feature that has been around for some years but has dwindled in popularity.

But more time management options aren't the only new things accompanying the update - others include notification management and more "Do Not Disturb" features.

■ Apple is also planning an update to ARKit, its platform for developers to build augmented-reality experiences on iPhones and iPads, which it announced past year.

If you are an app developer, download the software via the official Apple channels.

The new features for iOS 12 will be released in September. And the version 2.0 of ARKit is to change the way Apple users interact with their phones. What the new intent in the firmware upgrade will do is to allow developers to generate audio or video playback from third-party media apps using Siri. There are automatic software updates now.

These apps might have the same overall feel as their mobile counterparts but key user interactions will have to be updated for the desktop environment.
